Deadlines for item-based approval WS14500015

Dear forum members,

I have read that you cannot use a z-version of the WF template WS14500015 as the task ID is used a lot in standard code.

Can you tell me the way to setup deadline monitoring to send reminders or escalate the workflow to different people with this in mind? What methods have worked for you?

Many thanks,

Nick

    Hi,

    Where did you find that information?

      Hi Masa,

      We want to setup escalation to different approvers OR send reminders - its undecided. I am just trying to find out steps involved for either and effort (no. of days)

      For escalation, will SAP support the workflow if we amend the template? I was assuming we should not try and anend based on what was mentioned in the OSS note

      Thanks,

      Nick

    We too are using WS14500015 for item based approval. We implemented the BADI - BBP_WFL_APPROV_BADI, method GET_REMAING_APPROVERS. This BADI determines the approval criteria, their characteristics, and the respective approvers. It is required to enable the standard N-step Item based shopping cart approval workflow (WS14500015) to function. The BADI contains a logic to route the approvals to the correct approvers based upon a predefined set of criteria, quantity, costs etc.

    But we wish to ensure that when 2 days have elapsed since the approval e-mail was sent to the Approver (and no approval has taken place) a reminder mail is sent to the approver reminding them to approve the shopping cart.

    The latest end tab within a task for deadline should enable this to be actioned but choosing the correct task doesn't appear to be obvious nor how a mail can be triggered, can anyone assist?
